This is a fantastic party game, and officially my current favorite.

Our first game was very nearly a zero-zero tie, but our second and third games were competitive and flowed really well -- this takes a round to get used to. It's looser than charades, and encourages going with your gut and getting to know your team.

It's just as much fun to watch as it is to be the active team, and just as much fun (in a different way) to be the guesser as it is to be one of the actors. It also plays quickly and has that "Ooh, one more game!" factor. Throw in the fact that it has short rules and is intuitive to anyone who's played Charades, and this is a great package overall.

My one quibble is that the cards are the same color on both sides, which makes reusing cards harder to avoid. They need to be a different color on the front and back, or there should be a little divider in the card box, or both. That doesn't prevent this from being an awesome party game, though.

Hilarious! I have used this game with many different groups of people. By the time they've spent 3 minutes into it, they're laughing like mad. It never plays past one game, but that game holds memories for all involved.

Must be played with a very large group in teams of 3 or preferably 4 or more. It's best to have at least 2-3 people acting and 1 guessing. so minimum players would be 6 (2 teams of 3) but better with 12 (3 teams of 4).

I did not expect this party game to go over so well. This game has been a blast every time. I really wish the other sets you can buy with this would come with more cards, and fewer repeats. I was going to buy the junior edition, but it has so many non-unique cards. I think I'll make some of my own.

Such a simple idea for a game that it almost seems wrong to charge for it. But it works well and a lot of the cards require coordination of different roles on the part of the actors which really sets this apart from most other games. So simple to teach and learn and guaranteed fun. The only caveat is that the players have to be pretty uninhibited.

Good times! This seemed to be a lot less intimidating than regular Charades since the majority of your team is acting at once. It was fun to see how the players came together to come up with a way for the group to act out a word/phrase. One problem we had was that some of the cards seemed to be *a lot* harder than others. It would have been helpful to have an easy and hard side to the cards that you could choose between when playing.

*Also own iPad version* I picked this one up because it came with all of the different versions of the game. I have yet to play the regular version on the iPad, but we've played Reverse Charades Junior at school and my students love it!

Easily one of the funniest games I've ever played. Always a good time. You know it's a good game when, although games take 15-20 minutes, the first night it's brought out it's played for nearly 3 hours.

Hilarious! This one caused me to nearly have an asthma attack from laughing so hard. Play this with experienced gamers/Euro gamers and it'll provide lots of fun and wonderful memories. Games that make people laugh this hard is a winner in my books. Don't mix all the expansions packs together, I recommend choosing a pack and playing with that. For gamers who's English is not their second language, I would recommend using the base game only, as some of the other expansions are very language oriented. Occasionally you'll come across words/phrases that are specific to America, but we house rule it, if the player's not from the States, and they say something similar, we let them have the point, because it's not all about winning hehe.
You can play it using the iPad/iPhone/iPod touch.

A simple twist on the classic party game just cranks up the fun an order of magnitude. I laughed until I had tears in my eyes. One minor concern is in the number of cards in the box. After a number of plays, I think I'll start to remember the clues.

What a hoot. The most fun is when you are on the team that is not up, just watching the group doing stuff. Great when a team figures out to work together on a clue, and not just do it independently. We made a great bucket brigade, too bad it was supposed to be an assembly line.
